Cook’s Bay, Lake Minnetonka MN
This outer ring western suburb is unique in the way it retains its small town character, while providing a business and retail environment to serve its growing metropolitan community.
Mound was a relatively self-contained community but all of that changed in the 1970’s. This change was facilitated by more efficient transportation to the metro area, and by the fact that more residents commuted toward the Minneapolis area. As a result, shopping patterns changed, and many retail businesses failed.
However, since 1986, retail sales have increased by about 25%, and the city’s Economic development plan has created the Mounds Vision concept, and is making plans to bring Mound into the 21st Century by making it a premier city of Lake Minnetonka. A key part of this concept is the restoration of an historic boat channel via Long Lake.
